Question: What have Britney Spears and Slim Whitman got in common ?
Answer: Slim Whitman's music (INDIAN LOVE CALL ~ Slim Whitman 1951) was used to fight aliens from Mars [Mars Attack!, 1996] and Britney Spears's music is now used to fight Somali Pirates :-)
Britney Spears is being used as a secret weapon to fight Somali pirates.
Spears's chart-toppers "Oops! I Did It Again" and "Baby One More Time" have proved to be the most effective at keeping the bandits at bay.
"These guys can't stand Western culture or music, making Britney's hits perfect."
The directional speakers aimed at the pirates are such that Spears' music does not bother the sailors aboard the supertankers.
(I was wondering for the while how to put it, and eventually thanks to Fab to come up with the analogy ^_^)
